Jouve India’s composition team combines expertise and scalability across India and the United States to provide top-quality service for your books. We take pride in our ability to work on all levels of books and design complexities and provide a high-quality product on time!
We specializes in producing books for various market segments:
With dedicated teams for each customer, our workflows are customized to each book. Discrete teams build requisite skill sets for trade, custom, art-intensive, and school products. Jouve India works on both Windows and Macintosh platforms using a variety of software applications including Quark, InDesign, Framemaker, TeX, and LaTeX. Senior composers are well-versed with PowerMath, Xtags, Autopage, and Pitstop.
Our well-equipped art studio is complemented by a highly creative design team that takes the time to thoroughly understand the needs of your project when creating either a full design or a design element to add to an existing design.
Our designers are experts in designing layouts and modifying existing layouts (simple and complex) for 1-, 2-, and 4-color textbooks, trade books, and catalogs. In addition, we design book covers and other collaterals.
Jouve India’s roots in XML and eBooks go back to 2001. Though the technologies have become more sophisticated, we have remained at the forefront of the industry. We have created XML workflows for major trade publishers and helped develop XML-based automated publishing systems for complex college textbooks. We were the first to commercially produce the universal eBook format, ePub.
With the popularity of Amazon’s Kindle, iPad, and smartphones, the demand for content for these devices is exploding. We have the expertise to convert your backlist titles to any eBook format. We develop “XML-First” workflows for print frontlist, making the composition process more accurate and efficient while allowing “on-demand” generation of eBooks for proofing and marketing during production. And, of course, once the print book is finished, XML is immediately available for repurposing, archiving, and accessibility requirements. The finished eBook is ready for sale on the eReaders before the ink is dry on the books!
Our experience, cutting-edge technical expertise, and enthusiasm for eBooks and XML make us an excellent choice for workflow development, consulting, and conversion projects.
We specialize in HTML5 technology. HTML5 is a W3C specification that defines the 5th revision of the Hypertext Markup Language. HTML5 is used to structure the content semantically and present it in the browser or Internet. Other new features in HTML5 include embedding audio, video, interactive elements, etc. HTML5 is now part of ePub 3.
Publishers excited by the prospects of revenue streams from eBook sales continue to struggle with the business model. Chief among their concerns is a desire to monetize content at the lowest unit cost possible. While the savings from printing and distribution costs of hard-copy books seem compelling, publishers are concerned about the costs of eBook production and potential revenue streams. Our One-Touch IPAD/Jstudio solution for backlists and the TeXML First solution for frontlist titles offer publishers an unparalleled value proposition to increase their revenues while significantly reducing costs.
We can handle conversions to the following formats:
We also convert content from print books to digital platform for travel guides, enabling publishers to have all their content structured and sorted by hierarchies thereby allowing research of content at the “Point of Interest” level. The services also include enhancing ePub files to allow greater interactivity and functioning of complex cross-links across the ePub (e.g., Linking different parts of the text to a map).
The Rich Media services focus on the publishing and corporate enterprise segments. Our expertise includes the following:
Jouve India develops custom mobile applications across different platforms, iPhone, Android, and Windows, covering services such as eCommerce, education, business, and games. Our aim is to build customer-centric applications that are user friendly as well as cost effective.
